Poultry project

KEDA’s poultry distribution scheme aims to assist households afflicted with HIV/AIDs improve their nutritional status and household incomes through the production of eggs and commercial breeding of poultry for sale. Under the project each household receives 4 pullets and a breeding cock. As with all of KEDA’s livestock distribution scheme in exchange for receiving poultry, recipient households must pass on 4 pullets to other poor households in their communities which the local livestock committees oversee.

Since the start of the project’s implementation which targeted 18 households, 300 households have to date benefited from KEDA’s poultry project distribution scheme.
